NASHVILLE — Grundfos will exhibit its ultra-efficient HVAC OEM circulator line at Comfortech 2014, the national HVACR, hydronics and plumbing conference taking place Sept. 9 to 11 in Nashville.
Through advanced solutions for boiler heating, heat pump, solar thermal, sanitary hot water and microchip system applications, Grundfos offers customers the opportunity to maximize their investment by saving energy.
“Designed for simplicity, efficiency and reliability, our circulators optimize energy usage and system behavior through innovations in adaptive intelligence and enhanced control,” said Barry Nauss, director of HVAC OEM Sales for Grundfos USA.
This technology allows products like Grundfos’ MAGNA and ALPHA circulator lines, which feature patented AUTOADAPT TM technology, to save end users up to 85% in energy costs when compared to conventional circulators. Indeed, Grundfos recently announced a partnership that would make ALPHAs available as circulator options on most U.S. Boiler Company gas cast-iron heating products.
“The Grundfos ALPHA pump is a great match for industry-leading, technically advanced boilers,” Nauss said. “We look forward to collaborating with additional OEM companies.”
In addition to the MAGNA and ALPHA lines, Comfortech attendees can visit booth 832 to see a variety of pumps from both the trade and OEM portfolios, along with assorted flanges, ISO valves and Grundfos’ sensors. Grundfos has a dedicated OEM engineering department capable of providing customer-specific modifications to each product, allowing true customization for any application.
